VIERA, Fla. -- Left fielder Josh Willingham, whose wife Ginger gave birth to the couple’s second child last Tuesday, still hasn’t arrived at Nationals camp because of a “personal matter,” manager Jim Riggleman said Sunday.
“It will be explained more clearly after he gets here, but Josh is doing good himself,” Riggleman said. “We’ve just got to get him here later this week or next, whatever it takes for him to get here. He’s one of those guys. It’s not going to take him long to get ready once he gets here. He always stays in good shape.”
Willingham’s absence is excused by the Nationals, who have every other player in camp at this point.
